  • The Olympus Tough TG-850 is a tough camera with a wide-angle lens that is a fine choice for photographers on a budget.


  • Arguably, the biggest surprise of the TG-850 is how good the image quality is. That's by no means a derisory comment towards Olympus, but more towards Tough style cameras as a concept. Typically – and based on other reviews of similar style cameras from all manufacturers – image quality is low down on the list of priorities, but here Olympus seem to be getting it right in most places.

    The Olympus Stylus TG-850 is a compact and versatile "Tough" digicam. It has been built to go anywhere that you can go. It is easy to use and performs very well, but it lacks in image quality.


  • So despite a few reservations about the image quality in low or high contrast light, the Olympus XZ-10 is a competitive addition to the ever-growing numbers of "premium" compact cameras aimed at the more discerning photographer. You could certainly do a lot worse than carry an Olympus XZ-10 in your pocket.


  • The premium compact camera market is one that is packed with some serious competition, but the Olympus XZ-10 more than holds its own against most of the competition.

    Images are great, and for the most part handling is also a good experience, while bonuses such as the touchscreen and art filters make it more appealing than some of its rivals - such as the Nikon P330.

    That said, Canon has managed to include Wi-Fi in the S110, while Sony has opted for a larger sensor in its RX100.


  • The Olympus XZ-10 is a solid all-round performer that features excellent AF performance, an impressive touchscreen and good design. But itâ??s let down by its small sensor and a few reliability issues.


  • The Olympus Stylus is good value for money if you want a waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof camera. It has a few other handy features, such as full 1080p HD video recording and 5 fps continuous shooting. Image quality is OK, particularly for sharing on the web. The body could do with some extra grip, there's next to none when compared to the Pentax WG-3.


  • The biggest difference between the TG-630 and the TG-620 is the addition of the TruePic VI processor, which makes it a highly responsive camera. But it comes at a price: the new processor helps it in some ways, but also lessens some of the advantages found on the TG-620. The sensor, for instance, could use some improvement.


  • The Olympus SZ-31MR iHS is a competent, feature-rich travel-zoom, but too few improvements have been made since the SZ-30 to earn our complete recommendation. Given this modelâ?? s problems with sharpness, distortion, and noise reduction, we think $400 is too much for the resulting image quality.

    Noise is a separate issue, but as for sharpness and chromatic aberration, itâ?? s no secret why this is happening. If you frequent the site youâ??


  • There are a few cameras on the market with a similar zoom level, but not as many that are as small the SZ-31MR. It is an ideal option if you are looking for a compact camera to take on your holidays. Images have excellent colour reproduction, except it doesn't cope well at taking portrait shots. It has a decent battery life, fast high-speed shooting and full 1080p HD video recording as well as a number of other useful features.


  • With its blend of pleasing photos (at lower zoom levels), quality build, compact body and high-res screen, this Olympus is an excellent camera, although most of the SZ-31MR's multi-record functions are needless gimmicks.


  • The very rugged Olympus Tough TG-820 is fast and capable of producing sharp images, but lacks the GPS functionality that is found in competing models.

    We like the Olympus TG-820 as a basic tough-cam. Its waterproof specs aren't any better than the competition, but the camera's sophisticated design means it has to be taken seriously. It's got a very different aesthetic than Canon's D20 waterproof camera (more toy-like), and it is even different than the futuristic (and high-tech looking) Pentax WG-2. We weren't all that impressed with the camera's controls and button layout, but we do like the picture effects and art filters that Olympus includes on the model.


  • The Olympus Tough TG-820 is one of the better ruggedised compact digital cameras on the market. Partly because it's built like Chuck Norris, but also due to the fact that it's relatively easy to use and delivers pretty good results. We especially like the Tap Control function and the pin-sharp LCD screen delivers class-leading performance too. While it's essentially a fully automatic point-and-shoot compact, the generous range of digital filters and fun shooting modes mark it out as a very good little camera.
